44th Annual Tour of the Swan River Valley  

TOSRV West . May 31 - June 1, 2014 

   

 Montana's Bicycle Touring Classic . 200 Cyclists

 Sponsored by: Missoulians On Bicycles 

The Tour of the Swan River Valley West (TOSRV West) is a two-day, 226 miles, challenging bicycle tour through western Montana's most scenic areas. It was established in 1970 as a recreational and social event rather than a race. Missoulians On Bicycles, the event organizer, provides food stops, baggage shuttle and overnight arrangements so that you can concentrate on enjoying the cycling. TOSRV West is modeled after the original TOSRV (Tour of the Scioto River Valley) in Ohio. (www.tosrv.org) 

We are returning to the original loop route again this year.  On Saturday we'll ride up along the Blackfoot and Clearwater rivers to Seeley Lake for lunch and then on to Bigfork for dinner and overnight.  On Sunday we'll ride alongside Flathead Lake and south along the Mission Mountains to return to Missoula - the classic,scenic TOSRV West.

TOSRV West is also an annual fundraiser for our club, a non-profit group established to promote bicycling in western Montana. In the past we have made donations to: Adventure Cycling Association, Missoula Institute for Sustainable Transportation, Friends to Youth, Missoula Bike/Ped Office, Watson Children's Center, Camp Mak-A-Dream, Hellgate Radio Club, Potomac 4-H club, Seeley Lake Senior Citizens Center, Bigfork Elementary School, Potomac Community Center, Arlee Fire Department and Ronan Boy Scouts.

We hope you enjoy this Montana Classic as much as we enjoy sponsoring it. View more history on the event.
